This is the question in my homework:
In orbiting the Earth, what kind of motion is it, uniformly velocity, uniformly accelerated or non-uniformly accelerated motion?
I have searched for almost an hour on the internet in any variety of those terms I could think of, and I still have found nothing on these subjects. Would someone be able to help me with this? Thanks.
Since the accleration vector keeps changing direction (always pointing to the center of the Earth), satellite motion is nonuniformly accelerated motion.
